GCC mayor Mannan joins office again

GAZIPUR, June 18: Gazipur City Corporation (GCC) mayor MA Mannan rejoined his office on Sunday, about 28 months after his arrest.

He was arrested on February 11 in 2015 from his residence at Baridhara in Dhaka in a case filed in connection with petrol bomb attack on a passenger bus.  

However, he again joined his office at Nagar Bhaban around 1:00pm. BNP-backed ward councillors and employees of the city corporation greeted him with flowers.

A number of leaders and activists of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its front organisations also gathered in front of Nagar Bhaban and welcomed him.

The mayor rejoined his office as the High Court (HC) stayed the government's order on his suspension. The government later submitted leave-to-appeal petition, but the Supreme Court (SC) dismissed it.

The mayor received the certified copy of the SC's order on Thursday and rejoined his office on Sunday.
